    Who do you think will be the better offensive defenseman: Ivan Vishnevski (Stars, '06 1st rd pick) or Anton Babchuk (Carolina, '02 1st rd pick by Chicago). Vishnevski is supposed to a better puck handler with problems in the defensive zone. Babchuk is supposed to be an imposing defensive force with a booming slap shot. I'm just curious how people see these two differently styled defensemen compare with each other :dunno:

    Bab should get around 12-15 goals a year and maybe some 30 assists for Carolina for the next 10 years

    Just turned 22 and he progressed each year. Well liked in Carolina. Just waiting for his time...

    If Babchuk was somewhere like Washington, Pittsburgh or still in Chicago people would not slap the bust lableon him.

    He's NHL ready, he impresses me when he gets a chance to play, and I hope the Canes for their sake don't rush into trading Jack Johnson because of the Kaberle injury... Instead they should let a guy like Babchuk play.
